The Research Group INTRA emerge through a collaboration between Dan Tedenljung and Per Apelmo. When Hannes Lundkvist and Bosse Bergstedt joined the group, the work developed into its current form and orientation, where the emphasis on an intra-relational perspective is central. This development is visible in our writing series. By Börje Forsgårds participations, we have received the capacity to communicate INTRA:s work in social media. Through the participation of Linda Jonsson and Pers Karin Skogar, the group is given broader possibilities for requests of practical implementations in collaborations and in assignments.

Research Group INTRA consists of:

Bosse Bergstedt

He has a wide interest of research and has during the recent yerars worked with the development of an onto-analysis, by which he studies philosophical and pedagogical phenomena. The interest for posthumanism and new materialism has brought him to projects about transcorporeal pedagogy with a special focus on expressive art and sustainable development. Bergstedt is scientific leader for the networks Posthumanism and new materialism and Post-approaches to Education.
